It’s ineffective satire.

Half the people in this thread are defending the author.

The other half is can’t tell whether the author is racist .

It’s not because half the readers don’t recognize satire when they see it.

It’s because there’s nothing in this document to contextualize the author’s baseline position.

Throwing around satirical one-liners on sensitive topics isn’t okay — especially in our current climate.

I get it.

But I don’t accept it.

I do like where it’s heading, though — which is why I made suggestions for improvement.

Because that’s what good editors and good Samaritans do.

Of course, editors and defenders harboring their own unconscious biases wouldn’t have a clue.

What is everyone complaining about?

Don’t they realize it’s satire?

It’s fine the way it is!

That’s exactly what priveleged white people would say.

Thanks for proving the point!
